Legal and professional services business Knights today announces the completion of its acquisition of Coffin Mew LLP – expanding its presence in the South of England.

The completion of the acquisition of Coffin Mew sees Knights welcome more than 100 fee earners to the business.

This builds on Knights’ existing expertise across the south east with its presence in Maidstone, Crawley and Weybridge by adding Coffin Mew’s strong client base in Brighton, Newbury, Portsmouth and Southampton. 

The latest acquisition, coupled with Knights’ organic growth, means the business now operates across 22 office locations.

James Christacos, Client Services Director at Knights, said: “We’re really pleased to welcome our new colleagues to Knights today and look forward to working with them to continue the great reputation they’ve built.

“We see huge opportunity for growth across the South East and are keen to engage with the leading professionals in the market as we look to recruit into the business to enhance our already strong offering to clients and colleagues.

“Our focus over the coming weeks will be to fully integrate our new colleagues into Knights and introduce them to our specialist teams and resources to enhance and broaden the services they can offer to their clients.”
